Garmin inReach Mini (Orange)

Lightweight and Compact Satellite Communicator

inReach Mini is your go-to connection for maintaining off-the-grid contact. It's our palm-sized satellite communicator for adventures where size and weight matter. inReach Mini lets you send and receive text messages, track and share your journey and, if necessary, trigger an SOS alert to contact the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team. With inReach connectivity, your family and friends will know they can stay in touch globally.

Travel Lighter, Communicate Smarter

Measuring just under 4" tall by 2" wide and weighing a mere 4.23 oz, inReach Mini is fit for exterior pack pockets or accessory loops. It connects for messaging via the 100% global Iridium satellite network. You don't have to worry about being within range of a cell tower or encountering spotty coverage. Your inReach Mini works anywhere.


Who will answer your SOS? GEOS will.

GEOS is the world leader in emergency response solutions and monitoring. They've supported rescues in more than 140 countries, saving many lives in the process. And they're standing by 24/7 to respond to your SOS, track your device and notify the proper contacts and emergency responders in your area. Once you've triggered a distress signal, you can expect a delivery confirmation that help is on the way and be continually updated on the status of your response team.

Multiple Ways to Connect

Wireless unit-to-unit connectivity lets you remotely control inReach Mini to send and receive messages using compatible Garmin handhelds, wearables or other mobile devices. GPS-based location tracking lets you share your whereabouts with those at home or out in the field. You can also post your adventures on social media. For basic navigation, there's an electronic compass that shows bearing and distance along a route or to a waypoint.


Pair with Your Mobile Device

For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth® wireless technology with your compatible Apple® or Android™ device so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts. Plus, Earthmate allows you to conveniently use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also access your phone's contact list from the Earthmate app to connect with fewer keystrokes.


Pair with Garmin Pilot™

In the aviation world, inReach Mini becomes a valuable air communications link. When paired via Bluetooth to a compatible tablet or smartphone running the Garmin Pilot app, your inReach Mini makes it easy to send and receive text messages while in the cockpit — even from areas without cellular reception. The app pulls in your smart device's contact lists, so access is simple and seamless. And since your inReach Mini is also a handheld GPS, Garmin Pilot can leverage its rock-solid position source to drive a georeferenced aircraft position symbol on your tablet's moving map display. Also, for your followers on the ground, inReach Mini can provide tracking of your flight, using the web-based MapShare™ page created for your inReach account. You can also link via Facebook® or Twitter®.


Get Weather on the Go

The optional inReach weather forecast service provides detailed updates directly to your inReach Mini or compatible device paired with the Earthmate app, so you'll know what conditions to expect en route. Basic and premium weather packages are offered. And you can request weather forecasts for your current location or any other waypoint or destination on your itinerary.


Rugged, Robust inReach

Tough, durable, impact resistant (MIL-STD-810F) and water-rated to IPX7, inReach Mini is built to keep you up and running. It includes an internal, rechargeable lithium battery for up to 50 hours' use at the default 10-minute tracking mode and up to 20 days in power saving mode. Recharge via the microUSB power cable or optional in-vehicle 12-V charger.


Affordable, flexible Satellite Airtime Plans

To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Mini, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or flexible month-to-month airtime plan.

    Lightweight, easy to use, pairs with iPhone or computer easily.

    Got this unit primarily for motorcycling in remote locations. Been caught out too many times with injured riders but unable to get immediate contact with emergency services. This unit ticks all the boxes. Full coverage anywhere. Lightweight and easy to use. Can pair with phone to give full keyboard, maps, and message functionality. Seemed to take a few minutes to receive messages, but not an issue if you need assistance. They will still take time to get to you. Can also suspend subscription when not in use to save money. I just hope I never need to use the SOS button but glad to have the option.

    Pros: Small unit for ease of carrying. Need iPhone for full function - but everyone carries a phone these days. Great options for subscribing to GPS service.
    Cons: Refresh times a bit slow.

    Fantastic device!

    This is a very well thought out device that is small enough that you will keep it on you, so when you need it, there it is! It could save your life, but also if your in a predicament that isn't life threatening then you can let someone know that you need a specific type of help without triggering a search and rescue. With access to weather information and basic navigation features this device is a must for venturing out of radio range and phone coverage and it gives you so much peace of mind for a reasonable cost.

    Pros: It's light weight and compact
    Cons: First Gps location fix takes a while

    Great gear and did exactly what I wanted it to do.....track my every movement in the field.

    I needed a single car / person tracking system to ensure my safety when working remotely. The objective was that I could be tracked and my safety guaranteed no matter where I was or the time of day. My movements are tracked from the office and if something goes wrong, there is a strong safety plan in place. Great tracking device for a reasonable price.

    Pros: Easy to use when its set up and does exactly as promised it would
    Cons: Long convulated process to set up with confusing instructions.

    everything you need

    Crazy small. Sits upright on a flat surface, unlike the Explorer which you need to prop up in camp to improve reception. As you have heard, you will want to pair it with your smartphone for messaging. Mini only checks for messages every 10mins by default, and you cannot change this. Garmin - perhaps add this feature in a future software update?

    Pros: tiny. great battery life for size.
    Cons: cannot change message check interval

    Best version of the inReach yet

    For me the inReach is the step before the PLB. If I'm leading a walk I want to be able to contact other's emergency contacts no matter where we are. It's got a big thumbs up from the wife and Garmin haven't messed with the Delorme API so you can programatically access your KML which is fantastic! For me I hate the restricted IPX rated interfaces of these devices so I love that the inReach mini doesn't bother and just escalates any real interface work to the iPhone. It's a win win because if you stopped to take your gloves off, you want to get the job done and get moving again ASAP. All in all it's an easy 10/10 from me.

    Pros: Love the new display, form factor is awesome, still fits old garmin tethers.
    Cons: GPS only not full GNSS and shows serious skew. Don't use this for navigation. Internal batteries only.
